There is enough reduction to push the fruit to the background though it appears ripe. Otherwise there is a lovely vibrancy to the lacy and intense flavors that possess a polished mouthfeel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a serious and mineral-driven finale. Lovely.
The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Village was cropped at around 28 hectoliters per hectare and is matured in 15 to 20% new oak. It has a well-defined bouquet with red cherries, wild strawberry and violet scents, quite precise and focused. The palate is noted by its grainy tannin, quite compact but fresh with a chalky-textured finish. I like the energy here and it should give several years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
A cuvée assembled from 11 distinct parcels within the village, offering up a pretty, direct bouquet of cherry and raspberry, with hints of sweet soil and elegantly framed by a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is medium-full and fine-grained, with a juicy core of fruit and a bright line of acidity. (WK)
The 2016 Chambolle villages is quite black fruity this year, offering up a complex bouquet of dark berries, black cherries, chocolate, a touch of nutskin and a fine base of chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and quite solid at the core, with fine focus and grip, suave tannins and very good length and grip on the finish. The energy on the backend here seemed a tad lower than on the other two AC bottlings, which I would attribute to the frost damage, but the wine is complex and balanced and will be very tasty. (Drink between 2021-2045)
Very lightly reduced but should provide lots of fun eventually. Round and fruity. But with structure. Straightforward. 16+/20 points. (JR)
(the crop was cut 50% by frost): Bright dark red. Pure aromas of dark raspberry and bitter chocolate lifted by a note of blood orange. Juicy, savory wine with lovely energy and mineral thrust to its flavors of dark berries, spices and saline minerality. A restrained sweetness is currently swallowed up by a slight greenness. This persistent, firm-edged wine will rely more on its acidity than on its tannins for longevity. (ST)
